The property

Mill Cottage adjoins Mill House, within the idyllic setting of Boggle Hole, near Robin Hood's Bay in Yorkshire.

This charming accommodation provides a warm welcome and quality feel throughout, perfect for couples looking to tour the region.

With just a five-minute walk down the hill to a beautiful sandy cove, it is just the getaway you have been looking for.

The bright and airy open-plan living area boasts a modern kitchen, where you can rustle up a romantic dinner for your other half.

Stairs lead up from here to a super-king double bedroom, a joy to sink into after a venturesome day exploring the local attractions.

You have your own little patio for soaking up the sun, as well as a shared tennis court within the owners grounds, perfect for a competitive couple looking to get a game in.

You are surrounded by a plethora of wildlife within the farmland, where you can catch glimpses of nesting birds, roe deer and foxes.

Just a few minutes' stroll along the beach is the ancient smugglers village of Robin Hood’s Bay, with its pretty cobbled alleyways and hidden ginnels to explore.

You can explore the pretty harbour town of Whitby and even explore the dramatic scenery of the North York Moors.

With walks, biking trails and the beach on the doorstep, it makes for a wonderful holiday destination.

South House Farm holiday cottages takes pride in helping sustain the environment within the North Yorkshire Moors national park.

With support from our guests, we can help maintain South House Farm holiday cottages as a green tourism business.Our first step to looking towards a greener future was to update the domestic sewerage system to a biologically and environmentally efficient system some years ago.

Following this change we continued to incorporate the sustainability concept by installing a bio mass boiler.

This replaced the old system of individual oil fired boilers that had previously provided heat for the cottages and the farmhouse.

More recently, we reduced our carbon footprint further by installing solar panels, which now help provide us with low cost, low carbon electricity for our family and guests - we export any surplus to the National Grid.

Another project which has evolved over the last 20 years at South House Farm is the natural organic approach we have taken to the surrounding farmland, which over time has provided a habitat for a plethora of birds, small mammals, insects flora and fauna which can be enjoyed by all our visitors.

A more ambitious plan of ours for the future is to expand our facilities to encourage cyclists to visit and enjoy our beautiful county.

We hope that these small contributions within the business will help you appreciate your surroundings more and that you support our green ethos for South House Farm.

About the location


Whitby 6 miles; Scarborough 17 miles.

Robin Hood's Bay, with its narrow cobbled streets and quaint cottages, is one of the most picturesque villages on the English coastline. Situated between Scarborough and Whitby, this charming old fishing village is to be found nestling at the edge of a wide sweeping bay backed by spectacular cliffs and dramatic moorland scenery, and was once home to author Leo Walmsley. All holidaymakers will love the beach and its cliff-top walks, whilst more serious walkers will enjoy the many long distance trails that pass through the Cleveland Way, the Lyke Wake Walk and the Coast to Coast walks which all take in Robin Hood’s Bay. The village amenities are superb, with charming alleyways to explore and plenty of places to rest, relax and take refreshment. A perfect base for enjoying the Yorkshire Coast.
